GIRANT PER SANT ANTONI

Pere Alberó

Spain 101 min World premiere Documentary

Synopsis

The Sant Antoni’s Market is an institution in Barcelona, to the point that its reform, which has lasted for years, has provoked intense debates. Between the documentary and the essay, the careful observation and the political commentary, this film talks about the place itself, but also about the neighborhood and gentrification, and the people who populate the area, from lifelong merchants to young people in search of a future of their own.
